Critic Reviews for Mad Men: Season 7

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (25) | Fresh (44) | Rotten (7)

One of Weiner's greatest achievements is to make something as banal as a firm pitching to advertise fast food (or a camera, or a cigarette, or whatever), seem worthy of the viewers' tears and devotion.

Mad Men's seventh season has done some of its best work so far by leaning on its own weighty past.

Full Review… | May 27, 2014

A glorious, subtle show.

I find it fascinating to watch this show push around the concept of identity in regards to this ensemble.

The main event tonight is the return of Mad Men with all of the style and swagger one expects from a show that's been playing at the height of TV possibilities since the start.

I still find the series compelling to watch, for the acting and for the writing. This end game is ramping up expectations which will be difficult to deliver on.

The hour delivers a series of lovely closing scenes that find Don feeling more honest intimacy than he has felt since the death of Anna, culminating in the kind of image and song choice that Mad Men fans find so powerful and moving.

Boston Globe

It was a fantastic entry into the season and one that already makes me long for another season we will never have.

Full Review… | April 15, 2014
TV Fanatic

The show has never been about wrapping up a plot, catching a criminal, or solving a riddle. It's simply about taking a certain group of characters over a set span of time-the 1960s-and showing us who they are at the beginning and the end of it.

In any case, I ate this episode up, from the realistically tender state of Don's marriage onward. This show may be a timepiece. But it's also, for better or worse, a conversation piece.

There are peaks and valleys, but mostly there's a lot of flat, ugly middle. The victories that you spend forever building end up being as ephemeral as fireworks, sparkling briefly before quickly fading back into the endless blackness of the nighttime sky.

Grantland

"Time Zones" was a good episode. It was funny in the way that Mad Men usually is, it was gorgeously filmed and impeccably acted, and it was deceptively sad. In other words, it was quintessential Mad Men.

Newark Star-Ledger

Answers will come. Actions will be taken. We just don't know when, how, or by whom. Embrace the intrigue, the subtle shifts in character, and Weiner's careful plotting.

It's fantastic to have this conversation piece back on a weekly basis.

It's beautiful to look at, and yes, it's full of things to unpack. And there will be time for that.

Full Review… | April 14, 2014

It's well-written, and beautifully framed, and we see some characters who have evolved considerably already, and are on clear paths to change even more, along with the times themselves.

Full Review… | April 14, 2014

Each season is starting to resemble an animated cartoon where the same landscape rolls by over and over again. We've seen a lot of these story lines before.

As fans obsess over every nuance of new Mad Men episodes, I hope the show answers one of our biggest questions: whether Draper can find peace in a truthful life or will surrender to the lies.

Full Review… | April 14, 2014

I was tickled by a surprise twist near the end of the episode that sets up some delicious skulduggery to come.

Full Review… | April 14, 2014
RedEye

We won't be able to fully appreciate it from moment to moment, because we're so eager to learn what's coming next, to get to whatever the future holds. But that future is a world without Mad Men, so let's not get there too fast.

The equivalence of Don and Freddy is actually far more pronounced than previously imagined.

On a show all about advertising and projecting a certain image, it's very entertaining when the show can actually play with the idea of how the media can sell us something.

IGN Movies

This is a show that loves ambiguities, digressions and oblique angles. Not many shows could pull that off, but Mad Men has the kind of cast that makes watching people think and react a real pleasure most of the time.

Gone are the days of "Zou Bisou Bisou" and Don's Hawaiian mortality freak-out. Nope. This season premiere, all we got was a cold pastrami sandwich with coleslaw smeared on the bread.

The characters got the wake-up calls last season. The writers need one this season.

"Time Zones" may not've been the most energetic start to Mad Men's final season, but like any good airplane landing, the descent has to be gradual. The end is nigh, but we're still en route.

Full Review… | April 14, 2014

Mad Men is always aware of its own bigness; it's deep, but it's also cool and crowd-pleasing.

Don Draper's introduction is one of my favorite things about this episode.

A new day is approaching, and Don seems unprepared for what lies ahead.

With each new season, I try to remind myself that the show is a slow burn. The first episode wasn't as glacial as the first episode of last season, but it still dragged a bit.

Full Review… | April 14, 2014
TV Equals

Characters, settings, and levels of cool are all swapped out indiscriminately, leaving us to piece together the real situation only as fast as Hornbacher and Matthew Weiner (on script duty) allow it.

Full Review… | April 14, 2014
Film School Rejects

Tonight's episode felt lighter than Mad Men has been in a long time, as though Don coming clean had lifted a weight off the entire series.

The New Republic

It's too early to tell, too early even to smell the smoke, but in the meantime, we'll wait for things to heat up. Because this is the beginning of something.

Here's a prediction about the final season: Peggy is the one to watch. Her journey is the one people are going to be blogging, tweeting and talking about.

Full Review… | April 14, 2014
Baltimore Sun

It's an excellent starting point for an episode that, even more than the average Mad Men premiere, has to spend an awful lot of time (especially given that it's our first one-hour premiere in a few years) filling us in on what happened during the hiatus.

Full Review… | April 14, 2014

Welcome back, Mad Men, you old day brightener, you.

Even though its opener is moody and a bit muddled, Mad Men still brims with sex, symbolism and surprises, as well as television's finest ensemble.

It's as watchable as ever.

Let's just say that if last season left you wondering whether the time had come to bail, tonight's premiere may convince you to wait at least a few more weeks before you decide.

USA Today

In the often bleak world of Mad Men, the women are stealing the spotlight, and that's not such a bad thing.

Full Review… | April 11, 2014
TV Guide

The show has nothing to teach us. It's just being honest about the truths people discover and then disregard, and the lies they tell themselves, as history moves around them. They're doing the best they can.

New York Magazine/Vulture

The writing, by Weiner, direction by Scott Hornbacher and performances are, of course, top-notch.

San Francisco Chronicle

It's the fetishizing of the visual, not lack of action, that leaves me impatient. But for now, we're on a plane and Weiner's in the cockpit... I don't know where we're going and neither do you. Might as well sit back and enjoy what's left of the ride.

The season premiere seems as exhausted as the decade it has chronicled so intensely.

Mad Men is beautifully shot as always, with the dialogue flowing naturally and meaningfully over alcohol... The pace hasn't quickened. Nor does the storyline congeal. Instead, Sunday's re-opener builds to a terrifically poignant finish.

Wherever this American saga is taking us, the getting there is likely to be exhilarating.

AMC's much-acclaimed Mad Men feels like it's coming out of a pit stop, rechecking gears and reacclimating to the track.

New York Daily News

The premiere lacks the gravitas of last season's heavily symbolic opener, but it sets the stage for what promises to be a tumultuous, enticing end run.

Chicago Sun-Times

The start to the bifurcated final season feels more indifferently paced than most - and thanks to the gradual push further into the 1960s, perhaps too groovy and scattered for its own good.
